Berries ~ @SavorySimple #Photography

No recipe today… just some food photography on a lazy Saturday afternoon.  Berries make a lovely practice subject.  And apparently snow makes a great light reflector!

    I enjoy your site and love your food photography. I was even inspired to ‘create’ some photos of my own food dishes and post them to my FB page. I wish you much success with your web page.

  3. Love the color on this.

  4. OOOOOOOOh how I love these! I always look forward to your musings and photos, but these pics are brilliant. I adore berries and now they will be pinned to my board too, for all to see.

    Beautiful, and inspires me to practice! And I want blueberries now, so thanks :).

  6. Gorgeous! I love the blueberry shots best, especially the first and second.

  7. Stunning! It’s been disgusting weather here since Monday. This is the longest I’ve gone in 2-3+ years! without picking up my camera! Like 5 days. I have so much food I can’t make until I get some sun! I am in love with these berries of yours!

    • Thanks so much, Averie! After weeks of overcast, terrible skies we’ve been having some great sun but the temps have dropped into the 20s. It’s brutal! I hope you can pick up the camera again soon.

  8. Amazing photographs. It’s been a pleasure knowing your blog.

  9. Beautiful food photography. I need to take a day myself to just play around with my camera.

  10. Gorgeous! It can be difficult to get a good berry shot but these are stunning. And now I’m craving a big ol’ bowl of berries. :)

  11. Beautiful shots! And yay for snow, Nature’s Light Reflector :) It’s nice sometimes to just take a break from a full post and mess around with the camera for the sake of it.

  12. Berries make a great subject, these are seriously gorgeous photos! :)

  13. Lovely, Jen! Nice composition & colors!

  14. beautiful! this reminds me of the first thing i photographed with when i got my dslr this past summer – blueberries!

  15. Absolutely gorgeous Jen! Berries are one of my favorite things to photograph too :)

  16. Beautiful photos! i just completed a post for tomorrow referencing how hard food photography is for me! Lovely examples!

  17. Gorgeous photos, Jen! I’m totally craving blueberries now.

  18. I like visiting your blog and browsing through all those beautiful clicks. I’m still working on my food styling technique, but what I love about your photography is that, you make the simplest photo carry lot of definition ,depth, and make it look wow. The lighting, the angles, and the dish of course, just perfect!

  19. Was just eating blueberries, cream and home made meringues:)

  20. BEAUTIFUL pictures! Any tips about photographing berries too???

    I’m craving berries so bad now… I guess it’s a healthy craving at least ;)

    • Thanks, Natalie! For me it’s all about good sunlight and knowing how to use all of my camera settings to tweak images. I used to take 20 photos of every shot on a different setting, hoping to get something good. Now I actually look at the histogram, adjust the exposure and aperture and tweak as needed. It makes a huge difference.

  27. Gorgeous. What I really want to know is, where did you get the gorgeous berries? Or were they only for photographing?

    • Thanks Laura! I got them from Whole Foods. They’re not the best in flavor this time of year but they’re pretty enough for photos (and they taste good enough once you push them through a juicer).

  28. pretty!

  29. That is absolutely gorgeous my friend, your photos are beautiful :D

  34. Beautiful photography. Your pictures inspired me to practice more on food photography. :)
